Democracy's choice~I

Liberal democracy achieved through centuries of struggles and sacrifice of thousands of people is in real danger today. Surprisingly, the danger signals are coming from those countries of the world which have traditionally been the most liberal, those in western Europe. The re-emergence of neo-fascist ideology in Italy and the rising influence of far-right political parties in Sweden, Austria, France, and Poland etc. do indicate the failure of liberal democracies to ensure security and prosperity and deliver goods to their citizens

Have tech, will talk

It is strange to be at Stanford University, the crucible of all things tech, and to be writing admiringly this field - but that's exactly what I am doing and it brings me great joy. If the purpose of technology is to make life easier, then Indians have been unique in the way they have adopted technology, embraced it, given it Punjabi jhappi-pappis and let it out in the world with the unforgettable Bollywood blessing: 'Jaa apni zindagi jee le.' Indeed, technology is never quite the same once it is released in India. It is swamped by Indians hearts and minds that stamp it all over with their particular desires. Take Facebook for instance.
